Hard to believe this little man is already 2 weeks old!
We visited Dr. Tomooka on Wednesday for Ian’s 2nd well baby check and everything looked a-ok! Ian now weighs 7 lbs 10 oz! Almost a whole pound more than his birthweight! So we know mommy’s feeding him well : ) He also does exceedingly well at his job of dirtying diapers. Already an overachiever. This is how he earned his nickname from Josh of “the peein’ mach-Ian.” He is especially good at somehow leaking out of diapers, mostly on his Dad. I believe Josh had to change his clothes 3 times the other day because of this special talent our little guy has. We blame it mostly on the Huggies, the Pampers we don’t seem to have an issue with.
I love how his little thighs and arms are getting chunkier. He kinda looks like he has little biceps in this outfit : ) My little muscle man.
Poor child gets hiccups at least once a day and nothing seems to work to get rid of them so we just have to wait until they go away which takes awhile sometimes and these are some forceful hiccups we’re talking about! He also gave us a bit of a scare this week with some vomiting issues. We’re not talking a little spit up, but full on barf : ( It started on Wednesday right after we saw the Dr. I had just finished nursing him and then poor baby just barfed up what seemed like everything he’d just eaten. He held down his next couple feedings and then did it again in the evening. Luckily, I know a lot of smart nurses, hahaha. So I texted a couple of them for nurse/fellow Mommy advice. We decided to just wait and see how he did through the night and just keep extra good track of wet diapers to make sure he wasn’t getting dehydrated. He did fantastic through the night and then had another episode in the morning. So, I gave the pediatrician a call and he basically told me to wait a little longer and advised me to do what I had already started doing…feeding less minutes more frequently so he doesn’t get overly full and keep him upright for awhile after feeds. He said reflux vs. stomach virus. My vote is with reflux….he hasn’t vomited again since yesterday morning, hooray!
Little Ian continues to be a joy to us at 2 weeks and we just love watching him grow!
